It's A Monster Bash Recipe Card Challenge!

This weeks Recipe Card Challenge is Autumn/Halloween Monster Bash. We are creating cards perfect for Fall gatherings with friends and family. Our design team has been hard at work creating a yummy variety of recipe cards to fill your monster appetite this week. Enjoy! 
This scary card was created by Lorie. These little meringue treats, are easy to make, and fun to eat for all of your little ghosts and goblins. This fabulous double sided paper came to me from Julie at Scrapbook Store at Your Door, and I just love everything about it. From the distressed look, to all the flourish vines connecting the pumpkins. It was a perfect match for my From the Crypt stamp set from Stampin' Up!. Be sure to check out all the fabulous new kitchen themed items Julie is carrying, just for your recipe scrapping needs. I popped up the little bats on paper springs to make it look like they are flying, added some ink to the edges of the image and recipe, and ABRACADABRA! A fast and easy recipe guaranteed to scare your tastebuds into begging for more!! 

  This scary card was created by me, Julie. I used the new eerie 6x6 paper from Basic Grey. I heat embossed the edges of the center piece with black embossing powder from Ranger. I also stamped the word Halloween in Versa Mark and heat embossed the Black powder. It gives a neat black glossy look to the card. The Bling is from Glitz Designs. The recipe is yummy too and perfect for a Bash! If someone has peanut allergies I would recommend using a sweetened cream cheese layer or icing if you want to be real sweet (: Candies such as gunny worms, candy corn, Halloween M&M's would be perfect for the candy topping. 
This is a close up of the fun Lollipop type flower I made for this card. I used one of the black pattern paper's from the eerie Basic Grey pack and tore layers smallest to largest in the shape of a circle. I used Versa mark around the edges and heat embossed them with black embossing powder. I wish my photography skills were a little better, because this flower looks so neat! You can try this technique with any pattern paper, but I recommend the Basic Grey 6x6 packs

This yummy recipe card is from Ceal. These Pumpkin cheesecake bars are always a hit. I didn't have any "monster" stamps so I went with a fall party recipe. The paper I used is some I had in my stash and the stamp is a Magnolia stamp. The pumpkin trim I found at Michaels. The other supplies you can find at Scrapbook Store At Your Door. Julie is carrying a whole new line of kitchen themed papers and embellishments for all your recipe card needs. She also carries Copic markers at a reasonable price so you will want to check out her online store for these goodies and more.
  This beautiful card was created by Lauri.  Well, in my part of the world we skipped fall and went right to Winter! Snow, ice, cold...blech! Afer an insanely busy weekend, I put together a very quick and simple recipe card for this weeks Monster/Autumn Bash recipe theme. Fondue is always fun! and here is a recipe for Cheddar and Hard Cider fondue! So while your kids are out trick/treating, keep the adults happy too with a warm snack!
I used some distressed paper from Julie's Scrapbook Store at your Door, along with some very pretty fall diecut flowers and pearl accents, also from her store. My recipe book is getting very full!!
